I recently attended the Red & White Comic & Toy Expo in Calgary. I got some nice comments on my work and had some nice discussions. I learned that face painting -- my neighbor's table -- can be very lucrative. To prepare for the show, I made a number of sets of greeting cards, some comic based, some fine-art based. The expo wasn't the place to sell greeting cards, I learned.

The above ogre painting is what I worked on during the show. People were impressed about the iPad's capability to make art. Some saw me as some sort of techie expert, but I see myself as always a beginner.

I would like to participate again, I think I need to have an actual comic to sell. My daughter told me that fan art is very popular and she bought some altered My Little Ponies. But I wouldn't dig drawing superheroes.
